Landlord and Tenant Law

Landlord and Tenant Law concerns landlord’s and tenant’s rights and responsibilities. Because the residence you rent is your own personal space, the law places many limits on the landlord’s activities. For example, if a landlord tries to make you move without giving you enough notice, or ignores a rat infestation, there are options and remedies you have as a tenant. On the other hand, a landlord whose tenant is breaking rules, such as moving out three months early or refusing to pay rent, remedies are available.
